In a clinical study conducted by Thomas Fiala, MD, MBA, FACS, FRCSC on patients undergoing EON treatments
, there were no unexpected or unresolved safety issues. Two patients (7.7%) did experience adverse events. The first subject experienced mild erythema (superficial reddening of the skin, usually in patches, as a result of injury or irritation causing dilatation of the blood capillaries) during the session, which led Dr. Fiala to shorten the treatment segments from 20 to 15 minutes for this patient only. The erythema had fully resolved by the time the patient left Dr. Fiala's office. The second subject had panniculitis with nodularity (tender or painful bumps below the skin's surface) reported at six weeks with full resolution by 12 weeks, as evidenced by ultrasound scans.
Additional findings from the study:
- No burns.
- There was a case of a small blister. During the follow-up conversation two days post procedure, the patient said that it had resolved.
- No findings of hypo or hyperpigmentation.
- No paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH).
Outside of the clinical study, physicians have reported zero adverse reactions using the EON laser device since EON’s introduction to the U.S. aesthetic market.
“I am known for being completely honest and upfront about medical procedures and that has allowed me to gain respect from Drs, patients, and the one million social followers who look to me to provide medical advice in the field of cosmetic surgery and medical aesthetics. For this reason I've never wanted to endorse a non surgical device that couldn't provide real results. Not only is this the first and only device I have seen kill fat without surgery but it does so consistently. I am proud to offer EON in all 6 of my clinics and to date have never had one complication.” ~Dr Chad Deal, Double Board Certified Cosmetic And Plastic Surgeon from Southern Surgical Arts.
